$28M mansion on 'Billionaire’s Row' is region’s priciest new listing

A huge home on “Billionaire’s Row” – Belmont Avenue in Point Grey, where two of B.C.’s five highest-valued properties are located – was the region’s priciest new MLS® listing of last week (January 8-14).

Asking $28 million, this grand mansion has more than 8,000 square feet of living space and sits on a vast 35,500-plus-square-foot oceanview lot on arguably Vancouver’s most prestigious street.

The property offers formal, manicured gardens – including a tiered fountain – overlooking English Bay, Howe Sound and the North Shore mountains. Inside, the home has huge living and dining spaces, with a massive double-height living room with a vast window. There are eight bathrooms and eight bedrooms, including a master bedroom approximately the size of a football field, plus a circular oceanview office. There’s also a luxurious indoor pool with hot tub and conservatory, and separate “nanny quarters.” The home is lavishly appointed – although the opulent decorations and extensive curtain-swagging may not be to everybody’s taste.

Those with more contemporary tastes may be drawn to the Lower Mainland’s second-highest-priced new listing of last week – this architectural award-winning Modernist home on a huge estate in Vancouver’s Southlands.
